Críticas:

'A real eye-opener' The Times 'A rich and eclectic survey, with an intriguing nugget on almost every page' Sunday Telegraph 'A pleasure to read ... His prose style is excellent and he covers and astonishing amount of ground. If you want to know the reason for tears, how to tell if someone fancies you, and why the grass does, in fact, appear greener on the other side of the fence, all the answers are contained inside the covers of this book' Literary Review 'An agglomeration of ideas and themes ... Ings knows the value of the genuinely arresting piece of information. The "wow" factor is consistently high ... richly enjoyable' Spectator

Reseña del editor:

* We spend about one-tenth of our waking hours completely blind * Only one per cent of what we see is in focus at any one time * You don't need eyes to see - blind volunteers have been taught to see through their chests Through a spellbinding mix of scientific research, mathematics, philosophy, history, myth, anecdote and language theory, Simon Ings brilliantly unravels the never-ending puzzle of how and why we see in the way that we do. With the help of a beguiling mix of illustrated visual conundrums and enigmas, Ings triumphs with a compelling dissection of the eye's age-old mysteries that is both seriously interesting and interestingly fun.
